Recent Art Projects

The first picture is of a bag that I made. I made one for my friend Anne (see previous post) that I used to put her lingerie in, and then liked it so much that I made another one for me!  As you can see, Skylar also likes it and routinely picks it up and carries is as such. 
Next, is a laptop bag!  There is a coordinating inside and outside and let me tell you, this thing was a beast!  Not as bad as the dress, but there was alot too it.  There is a coordinating ipod case that I am going to make to go with this, but haven't gotten to it yet. 

And last, I made a chair for Skylar! I made the actual chair and stuffed it; then made the slipcover seen.  Skylar loves the chair and constantly throws herself on the chair to sit while she is watching daddy watch tv... 
I have many more ideas and patterns that I want to try, but will need to wait a few weeks before the next one to save my band account.  The chair was a bigger hit than expected.

Charleston, SC

A few weeks ago, I met up with some college roommates of mine in Charleston, SC where we celebrated the engagement and soon to be wedding of Anne Schmitty!  We did what girls do when we get together for a lingerie shower... we oohed and ahhed about the lingerie, played dirty mind games and talked about sex!  It was great fun traveling around Charleston- it is a beautiful city! I can't wait to see everyone again in a few weeks!
